I love British brands so it’s no surprise that I was very excited to try out BEUNIQUE Hair Care, a natural haircare brand I have heard so much about. I was sent a selection of their products to test out – the Bamboo Monoi Milk Gentle Hair Cleanser, Bamboo Mango Smoothie Hair Conditioner and Mango Twist Styling Cream.
First up is the hair cleanser, I haven’t used any products with bamboo extract before so I was really interested to see how this would work on my hair. The cleanser is Sulfates free and formulated with Goat’s Milk and Monoi de Tahiti Oil in addition to the Bamboo Extract. It has a really nice scent and I like how it left my hair squeaky clean. I got a good amount of lather on the second rinse with the cleanser. Whilst I wasn’t able to detangle with this, my hair felt smoothed and it didn’t feel stripped of its moisture. My hair (4C texture) did clump and shrink with this a lot which is an indication to me that it’s getting a lot of moisture.
I tend to like conditioners with a lot of slip although this one didn’t have as much as I would prefer, I still like it a lot. In addition to Bamboo Extract, the conditioner contains Mango Butter, Brazil Nut Oil and Aloe Vera Juice which are ingredients I haven’t used on my hair before. After deep conditioning with heat for 10 minutes, my hair felt really smooth and so soft. The texture has a medium thick consistency and the pleasant scent is a bonus.
My favourite product is the Mango Twist Styling Cream because it gave me a nice soft hold and great definition to my twist outs. I also really like that fact that I didn’t have to use an oil when taking out my twist. The cream melts as you work this in your hair and when the hair dries it lefts a subtle sheen and feels like you applied an oil.
All the products worked excellently together to cleanse, condition and moisturise my hair. My tresses felt really soft and easy to manage with these products. I like the philosophy behind the brand and each product comes with a mini regime and shows you what stage you can use the products which is perfect for newbie naturals. I must also comment on the packaging; the black and gold makes it stand out.
BEUNIQUE Bamboo Monoi Milk is priced from £8.99, the Bamboo Mango Smoothie Hair Conditioner is from £12.99 and the Mango Twist Styling Cream is priced from £14.99.
